Application Rules and Instructions
MoMath seeks educators for the 2024 Rosenthal Prize Institute who are committed to deepening their understanding and use of innovations in mathematics, instructional practices, and mathematics outreach.  Through its work, the Museum strives to create a more just, tolerant, and enlightened society.  Apply today to see how lessons that stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics can be part of that process.

Applicants should be teachers of students in the middle grades and/or other educators whose work allows them to directly implement lessons in grades four through eight.  A commitment to share lessons with other teachers through local, state, and regional professional development activities is required.
